  1. Call me crazy, but I'd bet money if this guy was bashing Obama, you would love him and treat him like the decorated warrior he is.... B/A
  2. As some have said to me, this is from Bloomberg, owned by a candidate, so it is worthless... Just repeating what I was told.. B/A
  3. I love you guys... So when are all those arrests coming from the DOJ? How long will this coup continue. B/A
  4. In my opinion, both parties are corrupt and neither party represent God. They both serve their own interests which is mostly driven by greed. The worst of the 7 deadly sins. JMHO B/A
  5. Yup. It appears, Wall Street could care less about any president. It does what it wants. B/A
  6. Rev. Franklin Graham responded Thursday after the Christian magazine that his late father founded published an editorial calling for President Donald Trump’s removal. Christianity Today — founded by famed evangelist Rev. Billy Graham — published its article one day after House Democrats, in a largely party-line vote, voted to impeach Trump. “But the facts in this instance are unambiguous: The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents,” the Christian magazine said. “That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.” The article also cited Billy Graham in explaining why it called for Trump’s removal. “In our founding documents, Billy Graham explains that Christianity Today will help evangelical Christians interpret the news in a manner that reflects their faith. The impeachment of Donald Trump is a significant event in the story of our republic. It requires comment,” Editor in Chief Mark Galli wrote. After noting that “that politics is not the end and purpose of our being,” Galli wrote that “we do feel it necessary from time to time to make our own opinions on political matters clear — always, as Graham encouraged us, doing so with both conviction and love.” It was Christianity Today’s invocation of the late Billy Graham’s name that prompted his son to respond, Franklin Graham wrote on Facebook. “Yes, my father Billy Graham founded Christianity Today; but no, he would not agree with their opinion piece. In fact, he would be very disappointed,” Franklin Graham wrote, before revealing that prior to his death, Billy Graham voted for Trump, who he believed to be “the man for this hour in history for our nation.” It’s “unfathomable,” Graham said, that Christianity Today would “side with the Democrat Party in a totally partisan attack on the President of the United States.” “Christianity Today failed to acknowledge that not one single Republican voted with the Democrats to impeach the President. I know a number of Republicans in Congress, and many of them are strong Christians. If the President were guilty of what the Democrats claimed, these Republicans would have joined with the Democrats to impeach him. But the Democrats were not even unanimous — two voted against impeachment and one voted present,” Graham added. Minnesota Rep. Collin Peterson and New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew, the latter of whom is switching his party affiliation to Republican, were the only Democrats to vote “no” on both articles of impeachment. Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii voted “present” on both articles, which accused Trump of “abuse of power” and “obstruction of justice,” respectively. No Republicans voted in favor of impeaching Trump. “This impeachment was politically motivated, 100% partisan,” Graham wrote. “Why would Christianity Today choose to take the side of the Democrat left whose only goal is to discredit and smear the name of a sitting president? They want readers to believe the Democrat leadership rather than believe the President of the United States.” Next, he cited Trump’s accomplishments related to helping the economy grow, defeating the Islamic State group and renegotiating trade deals. “The list of accomplishments is long, but for me as a Christian, the fact that he is the most pro-life president in modern history is extremely important — and Christianity Today wants us to ignore that, to say it doesn’t count?” Graham wrote. “The President has been a staunch defender of religious freedom at home and around the world — and Christianity Today wants us to ignore that? Also the President has appointed conservative judges in record number — and Christianity today wants us to ignore that? Christianity Today feels he should be removed from office because of false accusations that the President emphatically denies.” Alleging an “inappropriate” quid pro quo on the behalf of the president, Democrats have taken issue with a July 25 call phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Trump did ask Zelensky to look into allegations of shady dealings involving former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter in Ukraine. But Democrats have taken things a step further, claiming Trump planned to withhold about $400 million in military aid unless Ukraine publicly announced an investigation of his political opponent (Joe Biden). While he was vice president, Biden pressured Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who had investigated Burisma Holdings, an energy company where Hunter sat on the board. Trump eventually released the aid to Ukraine, even though an investigation into the Bidens was never launched. According to Christianity Today, “it’s time to call a spade a spade, to say that no matter how many hands we win in this political poker game, we are playing with a stacked deck of gross immorality and ethical incompetence.” Graham said he disagrees. “Christianity Today said it’s time to call a spade a spade,” he wrote. “The spade is this — Christianity Today has been used by the left for their political agenda. It’s obvious that Christianity Today has moved to the left and is representing the elitist liberal wing of evangelicalism.” “Is President Trump guilty of sin? Of course he is, as were all past presidents and as each one of us are, including myself. Therefore, let’s pray for the President as he continues to lead the affairs of our nation.” The Western Journal has reached out to Christianity Today for comment but has not yet received a response. We will update this article if and when we do. https://www.westernjournal.com/franklin-graham-issues-fiery-rebuttal-christianity-today-invoking-father-call-trumps-removal/ B/A
  7. Well Umbertino I see many negs coming your way!!! LOL Yes, I know I annoy some folks with independent thinking. And God forbid I should make a joke about their master. If I said Obama has Dumbo ears I would lot's of greenies... That's what separates the boys from the men, or children from the adults. If you can't laugh at yourself who can you laugh at? B/A
  8. Thank you CL and may you enjoy your friends and family this Christmas and may we all have a fantastic 2020!!! B/A
  9. Thanks... That jab about bone spurs was a joke... At least one person laughed... B/A
  10. Have you ever worked in media? Everything goes before several people on the editorial board before going out. Even when I worked at a news channel for television, nothing goes on the 6:00 news without approval. So my experience tells me, the majority of people agreed before it was released. B/A
  11. Who said anything about rules? And I am not assaulting anyone. I am only trying to understand why people don't express their thoughts and opinions in a verbal manner. I'm sorry some don't like my commentary, the same could be said for many comments made by many people. But I don't just neg... I prefer conversation. Thanks for your concern. B/A
  12. Are you suggesting the magazine, it's staff and the editor who wrote are doing it for political gain? Is calling out the immoral acts of our president shameful? B/A
  13. Maybe I've been too harsh. Perhaps they aren't cowards when they neg me, it could be that they have bone spurs on their fingertips and typing is too painful. LOL B/A
  14. See toolman… That's what I mean. If you don't like something I say, you reply. You don't just neg and hide. I appreciate your honesty and your guts to express it. B/A
  15. I know you wouldn't neg me. I know you certainly are not a coward. I always enjoy your posts and I wasn't aware until you pointed it out that Graham is no longer in a management position. So thank you for that. But it still shows a big part of his base is considering their support for Trump based on their faith... That is important. The other thing that was somewhat of a surprise was Trump's response. Not all but some Christians are going to take offense to his unhinged tweet. As they say, there are no sacred cows, and it looks like Trump is now going to divide Christians by forcing them to make a choice. Your morals and convictions or him... I have read where people believe God sent us Trump and my first reaction was that's insane, but thinking about it, maybe it is true. Perhaps God sent Trump to test his flock and see where their loyalty lies. B/A
  16. You are joking correct? You see the onslaught of cowards who really have nothing to add... But I thought I would see some intelligent post on this story. It is rather big news coming from a strong part of his base. And the fact his response is to slam them makes it even more interesting... B/A
  17. WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump, who has attacked many news organizations during his career in politics, found a new target Friday: Christianity Today, the faith-focused magazine founded by the iconic evangelical preacher Billy Graham. Trump lashed out at the publication, calling it a "far left magazine" on Twitter the day after Christianity Today posted an editorial calling for him to be removed from office. Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives on Wednesday and faces possible removal in a Senate trial next year. "Christianity Today, knows nothing about reading a perfect transcript of a routine phone call and would rather have a Radical Left nonbeliever, who wants to take your religion & your guns, than Donald Trump as your President," Trump said. In an editorial posted on Thursday, Christianity Today said the House was justified in approving impeachment articles over allegations Trump pressured Ukraine into investigating political opponent Joe Biden. "The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents," the magazine said. "That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral." 20.4K people are talking about this Christianity Today called on the Senate to convict Trump and remove him from office, calling it "not a matter of partisan loyalties but loyalty to the Creator of the Ten Commandments." The Republican-run Senate is expected to acquit Trump in the trial. In his harangue against Christianity Today, Trump said "no President has done more for the Evangelical community, and it’s not even close." In the 2016 presidential election, Trump won 80% of the votes from whites who declared themselves born-again or evangelical Christians, according to exit polling. While Billy Graham died in 2018, the magazine says it is still guided by his spirit. In its editorial calling for Trump's removal, Christianity Today said that "we do feel it necessary from time to time to make our own opinions on political matters clear – always, as Graham encouraged us, doing so with both conviction and love." Franklin Graham, Billy Graham's son and a Trump supporter, tweeted that his father "knew @realDonaldTrump, believed in him & voted for him. He believed Donald J. Trump was the man for this hour in history for our nation." Other news organizations editorial boards have called for Trump's conviction and removal, and been subject to presidential blowback – including USA TODAY. On social media, critics of Trump noted that Christianity Today is a conservative publication and mocked the president for his criticism. "No one would call Christianity Today 'progressive' but you. Sad!" tweeted Daniel W. Drezner, a professor of international politics with The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-calls-christianity-today-far-133111247.html Well now Trump turns on Christians... What a sad person. B/A
